To The Editor:

It is great to see two thoughtful people running for one of two seats on the Waitsfield Select Board -- Jordan Gonda and Jennifer Stella, and I thank them for running. I have known and worked with Jordan in state government for a number of years, and when a seat opened up over a year ago, I reached out to Jordan to see if she would put her name in for consideration. I am thankful that she did. As a select board member, Jordan listens well to all perspectives, is respectful, hard-working, and collaborative. Her skills as an attorney, experience in state government and years of volunteering on local commissions are real benefits to the town. Please consider joining me in supporting Jordan Gonda for reelection to the Waitsfield Select Board.
